Researchers at Vanderbilt Seek Study Participants for a One-time Blood Draw

Researchers at Vanderbilt University are looking for participants age 18 and older, especially those older than 45, who have diabetes and/or cardiovascular disease and/or are on cholesterol medications called “statins” for a research study to better understand the role of lipids in heart disease in patients with kidney disease.

If you do not have kidney-related problems and you meet any of the criteria above, you may qualify.

The study will include a one-time blood draw. We will also collect information about your general health condition.

Participants will be compensated for their time upon completion of the study. For more information, or to see if you qualify, please send an e-mail to ikizler.lab@vanderbilt.edu.
